Micro Perf Myths

Controlling how and when sounds are absorbed is pivotal for equipment and machinery. Acoustic designers use a combination of tactics and materials to control sound absorption and direction. One method manufacturers use is adding layers of composite materials, foams, and films to create panels with different rates of absorption. Micro perf, or micro perforation, is […]

Acoustic Components in the Medical Industry 

Patients and medical practitioners both benefit from quieter environments, but hospitals and laboratories often have high levels of ambient noise. Even clinics, offices of private practitioners, and homes of recuperating or long-term patients still have noises that may cause distraction or anxiety. Noise absorbers and sound dampening materials are important throughout the medical industry as patients and medical professionals seek to reduce noise levels. OEMs are often asked to reduce noise levels […]

A Closer Look at Sound Damping vs. Absorption

Acoustic vibration or acoustic energy—more commonly referred to as noise—can be mitigated or eliminated using sound damping or sound absorption techniques. Damping reduces acoustic vibration within any type of structure, wall, or system. In contrast, sound absorption works to dissipate airborne acoustic energy or sound waves. Though different, both achieve the same goal of mitigating […]

Acoustical Treatments for Air Compressors

Air compressors are an efficient means used to fill gas cylinders with high pressure air, power HVAC control systems and pneumatic tools, and a broad range of other mechanical functions. Their biggest drawback is their noise level, which reaches between 70 and 90 dB depending on their rotational frequency, system design, and flow factor.  To […]
